How to Prepare Your Windows for Winter

We’re well into autumn, and winter is just around the corner. Even if you’re ready for cold weather, your windows may not be. From checking for drafts to inspecting windows for cracks, let’s take a look at how to prepare your windows for winter.


The experts of BobVila.com suggest checking your windows for:

Worn out weather-stripping

When the weather stripping on your windows starts falling apart, cold outside air can find its way in. This should be replaced before winter to prevent heat loss! Refer to this guide from House Logic for tips on replacing weather stripping.

Rotting or decaying window frames

If your wooden window frames show signs of decay, it’s likely time for a repair or replacement. This will not only help keep your home warm this winter, but will also help maintain structural integrity.

Drafts

Feeling for drafts will help you identify where heat could be escaping from your house. Look back at this blog post if you’re not sure how to identify where drafts are coming from. Caulking both the inside and outside of drafty windows prevent heat from leaving your home.

Cracks, chips and breaks in the glass

These need to be replaced as soon as possible. Frigid winter temperatures could further exacerbate any fractures that already exist.
